Illinois Mom Gives Birth To Her Own Granddaughter

Illinois mom, 51, births her own granddaughter

Julie Loving gave birth to baby girl Briar for Breanna Lockwood, who has had infertility problems

Why more parents are struggling with secondary infertility

Most parents may assume that it will be easy to get pregnant again after having their first child, but that may not always be true. Reports estimate that over 3 million couples in the United States face secondary infertility. Fox News’ Dr. Manny Alvarez sits down with a renowned fertility doctor to discuss the heartbreaking condition.

A woman in Illinois just gave the biggest gift to her daughter – birthing her granddaughter.placeholder

On Nov. 2, Julie Loving, 51, gave birth to a 7-pound, 1-ounce baby girl, Briar, for Breanna Lockwood, who has had infertility problems.

The family has been documenting their journey with an Instagram with over 129,000 followers.

"My mom was an absolute rockstar through a difficult delivery," wrote Lockwood, in an Instagram post announcing the birth. "The sacrifices she took to bring this little slice of heaven into our world takes my breath away."

Loving stepped in as a surrogate after Lockwood and her husband, Aaron used in vitro fertilization (IVF) to make their baby.

"My mom breezed through every preliminary test she took, to be able to give us this gift. Defying the odds at 51 years old, she’s pushing reproductive science out of the box."

Lockwood is so happy to finally be a mom after several miscarriages.placeholder

"Holding my daughter in my arms, my heart is bursting," Lockwood writes. "The feeling of how I would do absolutely anything needed for this child is radiating through me when I look at her, and reflects back on what my mom did for me."                                                                                    https://www.foxnews.com/us/illinois-mom-51-births-her-own-granddaughter

I wonder how this would be recorded on the birth certificate.  Is the child's mother, the grandmother or is the egg donor (the daughter) the mother.  Truthfully, the grandmother had very little legal part in it.
